AboutYi is a continental philosopher whose work intersects with world literature and global history. Her research re-interprets the terra-centric western history of philosophy from the perspective of the maritime. By holding up the sea as mirror to western philosophy understood as a form of historicity and coloniality, Yi works toward a hermeneutic method of re-writing the history of philosophy from a non-western and feminist perspective, as a genealogy and archeology of the diluvial. Yi holds a Ph.D. from the New School for Social Research and an M.Phil. from the University of Hong Kong, both in philosophy. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Society of Fellows, Dartmouth College, where she is also a research associate in the Comparative Literature Program.
